Rough English translation: Polckwitzer: "Lydia my daughter my capital asset my everything! There stands a man, a talented man, a clever man, a rich man, a loyal friend! He would like to have your artful hand, your beautiful voice, your witty mind, your pleasant manner, your pleasant manner, your excellent character. he wants to marry you, Will you say no?¿ 1906 Jewish Enc.: SESSA, KARL BORROMÄUS ALEXANDER: By: Gotthard Deutsch. Anti-Jewish author; born at Breslau Dec. 20, 1786; died there Dec. 4, 1813. He studied philosophy and medicine in various universities, graduated as doctor of medicine in Frankfort-on-the-Oder (1807), and was district physician in his native city. Besides essays on medicine and various poems and plays he wrote a comedy entitled "Die Judenschule," which presents Jewish characters in the most vulgar way, all of them being actuated by the lowest mercenary motives and speaking a repulsive jargon or a ridiculously stilted German. The play was first presented in Breslau Feb. 11, 1813; then, under the title "Unser Verkehr," in Berlin and elsewhere, until the police prohibited its repetition. It was published anonymously in Breslau in 1815, and often reprinted, even in Reclam's "Universalbibliothek." Treitschke ("Deutsche Geschichte," iii. 756, Leipsic, 1885) says that some thought Goethe had written the work, and that the house of Rothschild offered a prize for the discovery of the author. According to Treitschke, the author was Karl Andreas Mertens, a Protestant minister at Halberstadt. Both of these statements of Treitschke are unfounded. Bibliography: Grätz, Gesch. xi. 338 et seq.; Ludwig Geiger, Ueber den Verfasser der Posse: Unser Verkehr, in Allg. Zeit. des Jud. 1903, pp. 78 et seq. Johann Michael Voltz (October 16, 1784 in Nördlingen ¿ 17 April 1858 in Nördlingen) was a German painter, graphic artist and political cartoonist. Voltz's father was a schoolteacher. Voltz studied with the engraver and art dealer Friedrich Weber in Augsburg. His drawings and graphic prints brought him to the attention of the court painter Schmidt. After completing his education he was employed by the academic bookstore Herzberg in Augsburg, where he created popular prints. After staying at Munich in 1808, Voltz joined in 1809 the business of picture book publisher Friedrich Campe in Nuremberg, for which he worked until his death. In total, Voltz 'oeuvre includes about 5000 drawings and etchings, which he created for Campe and other art publishers (Augsburg: F. Ebner, Herzberg, Jenisch & Stage, trolleys, William, Zauna; Nuremberg: Abel-Klinger, Raspe, Renner, Schrag, etc.). Voltz focused on illustrations of battles and other historical events. He depicted events of his own time - the Napoleonic Wars since 1805, the German War of Liberation against Napoleon, and later the Greek War of Independence, as well as from earlier history such as "Luther at the Diet of Worms". In 1828 he made a series of drawings on Children's games. Voltz was also known as a prominent German political cartoonists of the early 19th Century. His cartoons, directed against Napoleon Bonaparte, are still reproduced in present-day history books. His depiction of the 1819 antisemitic Hep-Hep riots in Frankfurt is often reproduced in articles and books about these riots and about antisemitism in general. N° de ref. de la librería 008053
